ACEREDA, Alberto. Critical omissing surrunding Rubén Darío`s ideology and socio-political views. Cuad. CILHA [online]. 2009, vol.10, n.1, pp. 149-175. ISSN 1852-9615.
Sociological and marxist critics of Modernismo have given primacy to the writer´s social responsibility. Some critics challenged Rubén Darío for having detached himself from social themes and for his lack of regard for political issues. This article shows that a closer and more comprehensive reading of Darío´s works reveals the presence of political themes including his explicit opposition to socialism, anarchism and marxism. It also shows Darío´s positive view of the United States of America, an area often overlooked by most critics.
